Re: The run to 8th edition

We have an attack grenade. Yes it doesn't deal a lot of wounds with it's low strength profile, but it can severely hamper the target unit.

Re: The run to 8th edition

A thought occured to me, presuming transport rules are decent, we could be seeing the return of the Warfish. With 12 strength 5 shots, 8 of which ignore cover and line of sight, and only a -1 penalty to hit while moving that is some serious mobile firepower.

Re: The run to 8th edition

As maligned as our codex was by Tau players in the 5th edition, our 4th edition codex had a lot of mobility in it. Unfortunately the options that made our tanks good were removed or nerfed when the 6th edition codex came about. The most devastating blow to mobile Tau was Supporting Fire. This rule e...

Re: The run to 8th edition

We are also thinking in old paradigms here. It used to be that getting a fusion blaster within 9 inches, beating the target's AV and then rolling a 5+ on the damage chart was our best way to kill high AV vehicles.

Re: Can you mix Breacher Teams and Strike teams??

From a rules perspective, breacher and strike teams are totally seperate.

Re: The run to 8th edition

Being able to out melee a similar number of Guardsmen is pretty much the criteria for being a top tier melee unit within the Tau codex.

And we all know that Kroot eat Guardsmen for breakfast.

Re: The run to 8th edition

By the way, a Leeman Russ has T8, W 12 and 3+ by the looks of it.

Re: The run to 8th edition

I wonder what the target locks will do now?

Also, Darkstrider plus Pulse Weapons gets us a 2+ on T3 models and a 5+ on T!0 models. With Rail and Ion it is 2+ against T4 models. Over charged Ion is 2+ vs T5 models.
